December Medical Supply Shipment Arrives

This past week our December Medical Supply Shipment arrived at the Kharkiv Regional Clinical Hospital, shipped courtesy of our good friends at RocMaidan. Thank you RocMaidan! As you may recall, this shipment included 270 lbs (123 kg) of medical tube feeding formula used for patients who have had a gastrostomy tube placed due to an injury and illness, and need a way to receive nutrition during their recovery. Also included were supplies to care for patients who have a tracheostomy placed.

Toys for Kharkiv Children's Hospital

We wanted to share with you some recent images of the delivery of toys to patients at the Kharkiv Regional Children’s Clinical Hospital, which we sent a couple of weeks ago. We hope you find these pictures as heartwarming as we do. With bad news seemingly coming at us from all the corners of the globe, we and our donors are always looking for ways we can do something meaningful. Bringing a smile to the face of a hospitalized child is just one way we can do that.

Bring Them Home Now

The message from our canine volunteers is again really simple. Children are children, no matter where they are. They need to play, go to school, make friends, be with their families, and live in peace. The terrorist state continues to hold hostage thousands of Ukrainian children illegally transferred from their homes. No one will ever forget this. In horror, we saw on October 7 how Putin’s friends in Tehran and Gaza all share something in common – the kidnapping of civilians including children as hostages.

Tpn Delivered

Earlier this summer, we received a request from the O.O. Shalimov National Institute of Surgery and Transplant Medicine in Kyiv to help provide supplies of Total Parenteral Nutrition (TPN) for their patients. Many of their patients have suffered combat wounds and required surgery, and may not be able to eat and use their gut to absorb nutrients while recovering. TPN, you will recall, provides all the protein, sugars, and fats – as well as vitamins and minerals – that the body needs while healing.

Ambulances Equipped in Mykolaiv, Dnipro, and Zaporizhzhia

This past week saw a major delivery of aid paid for by our donors, and delivered by our partners, Future For Ukraine Foundation. We provided four automated external defibrillators (AEDs) to ambulances in the Mykolaiv, Dnipro, and Zaporizhzhia regions. AEDs are medical devices that help patients experiencing cardiac arrest. The device analyzes the heart’s rhythm and if necessary can deliver an electrical shock to help re-establish a normal heart rhythm.

Microscope for the Kharkiv Children's Hospital No. 16

For a number of weeks, we have had several aid projects in the works nearing completion. And this last one has been a big one for deliveries – so we are a little behind with announcements! The pediatric oncologists at the Kharkiv Children’s Hospital No.16 reached out requesting a trinocular microscope with camera to assist them in the diagnosis and treatment of pediatric cancers and other blood disorders. Working with our partners at Future For Ukraine foundation, we purchased a Levenhuk D870T clinical microscope, and we are pleased to announce it has been delivered and is in use!

Spirometer for the Kharkiv Regional Children's Clinical Hospital

This last week our partners Future For Ukraine Foundation helped us deliver a spirometer to the Kharkiv Regional Children’s Clinical Hospital. The $1500 in funds that allowed us to complete this project came from the Korones Family Foundation donation, and for that we are very grateful! Spirometers are medical devices that give doctors information about how well a patient’s lungs are working by measuring how much air goes into and out of the lungs during breathing.
